ASIA: Europe to Asia, come in Asia.  Read some history, please.
Germans are outraged by the ice cream cones on sale in India. Hitler's face and name are plastered across the packaging, but his furious eyes are completely at odds with the sweet treat.

HERMIT KINGDOM: The one thing they don't seem to have run out of is new ways to kill people.
Whether it's the South Korean media or the North Koreans being so is unknown. But we've had the execution by mortar round, the eaten by wild dogs, now the flamethrower. I start to wonder whether there's someone, again whether in the media in the south or the military in the north, who is trying ...

ADVERTISING: I've never wanted a Volvo more.  

I still don't really want one but I don't don't want one as forcefully as before.  This ad is brilliant, although deep down I know anything that comes with "plastic nipples" is sure to be a disappointment.

TWITTER:  People go on it when emotions are running high and maybe they should count to ten first and a consequence posts can be something they may come to regret.  Take this example, where the adrenalin is pumping so much the author writes "Should Of" rather than "Should Have".

GOLF: It's a good walk spoiled.  But big news: people are whacking the ball too far.  Too far?  Much further than before, anyway.  Far enough that they're hardly even spoiling the walk.  Unfortunately, the attempt to make courses longer appears to have entrenched the advantages of long drives instead of undermined it.  Seems obvious now.

GOVERNMENT JOBS:  Over time most agencies morph into elaborate middle class welfare schemes.  Even still, the Italian Tourist Board seems a little out of control: it "spends an astounding 98 percent of its budget on salaries, with basically nothing left for its actual job of tourism promotion."
Tourism ought to be to southern Italy what oil is to Norway: a blessing and a source of wealth.
